Experience Polarr Free

Many Polarr users have come to love our tools, but may not love our subscription plans which are needed to access them. Over the last few months, we have heard from our users about their situations and understand that many are in an age or financial situation where they can not afford a subscription. We have implemented your suggestions and we’re excited to launch our Polarr Free plan that allows everyone to use our tools, regardless of your finances.

Starting on May 26, 2023, our Polarr Free subscription plan will be available to Android users where they can use premium tools and features for free, by watching short ads. Whether you are a student or trying to save some extra cash, your tools to creativity will no longer be limited. With our Polarr Free plan, you are able to:

  • Watch ads to access Instant Export for free filters.
  • Watch ads to access regular exports with free filters and tools.
  • Save up to 3 filters.
  • Have unlimited access to free tools.

And this is just the start of Polarr Free! We know that there are more premium features that you would like to access for free such as saving more filters and accessing more tools. Over the next few weeks, we will be expanding Polarr Free to incorporate more features and bring Polarr Free to iOS users. Anyone and everyone should have access to the best tools and from your suggestions, our Polarr Free plan will remove the financial barriers to do so.

If you are an existing user with no subscription plan, you will automatically be placed into the Polarr Free plan. If you would like to opt-in to the Polarr Free plan, you can do so by opening Settings in the Profile Tab of Polarr and changing your Subscription Plan.
